Prasarani is one of the drugs used for treating Vata Rogas such as Ama Vata, Avabahuka etc. Among the different source plants of Prasarani, the plant Merremia tridentata Hallier.f. is mostly used in South India and the plant Paderia foetida Linn. in North India, hence taken in the present work for comparative study on Amavata. The disease Amavata resembles with Rheumatoid Arthritis (R.A.). Both the plants Merremia tridentata Hallier.f. and Paderia foetida Linn. have good effect on the disease Amavata. Among the two, the plant Paderia foetida Linn. has a better effect than Merremia tridentata Hallier.f. The plant Merremia tridentata Hallier.f. has a little more advantage over the plant Paderia foetida Linn.which possess offensive odour which will not reduce fully even after boiling.
